This Spatlese from this great vineyard is wonderful. It’s rich and spicy, with fruit verging on red, and loads of energy on the finish. A complex wine, and one that will last for years.
Dr Loosen is one of the top producers in Mosel, arguably Germany’s most famous region for Riesling. Ernest “Ernie” Loosen took the helm in 1988 with acute focus on one thing: his vines. With the good fortune to inherit vines averaging sixty years old in some of the Mosel’s best terroir, he’s reduced yields, moved to organic farming and placed great emphasis on the vineyard site itself. Loosen wines are perhaps some of the most iconic in the region.
